“The DN-III plan is being applied and 92 elements of the Ministry of National Defense have arrived at the scene of the incident with specialists and four canine pairs,” the head of state reported.

In June 2021, a similar incident occurred in the state of Coahuila when seven workers were trapped inside a mine after a collapse.

On February 19, 2006, one of the largest claims of this type in the history of Mexico occurred, when 65 workers died in an accident at the Pasta de Conchos mine, also in Coahuila, and only two bodies were recovered.
